Whether you’re downloading the individual user / free trial version, or the we have sent you a dedicated install file for your company’s installation, there are a few things to know before installing.
You can use this application for as long as you want, free of charge. This is a single-site install, meaning that you can put this wherever you want on your computer, or on a network drive, but it is designed for a single person to access. If you want to share the application with other people then please contact us so that we can get you set up with a free multi-user installation.
This application is built for computers running Microsoft Windows (but Apple Mac and mobile versions are coming). Additionally, it uses Microsoft Access to run; Access is often included in Microsoft Office. If you don’t have MS Access, or don’t know if you have it, then simply download the 32-bit Parts Dashboard application below, and during the installation process you’ll be prompted to install a free version of MS Access, called the Access Runtime.
You will need to determine which version of the Parts Dashboard application you require. There are 32-bit and 64-bit versions available — which one you need depends on the version of MS Office you have installed. (Note, we do mean which version of MS Office, not which version of MS Windows your computer is running.)
Even with virtually all modern computers using 64-bit MS Windows, most will still use 32-bit MS Office. You need to select the version of Parts Dashboard that matches your MS Office install. If you don’t have any version of MS Office installed then no problem. Go ahead and select the 32-bit version, and download the free MS Access Runtime. Use the following link to determine which version of MS Office you have:
